Food safety course
Food business operators are required by law to ensure that food handlers receive appropriate supervision and instruction/training in food hygiene in line with their work activity and enable them to handle food safely.
The Foundation in Food Safety Certificate
Here at Epping Forest DC we provide the nationally recognised Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, Foundation in Food Safety Certificate (previous equivalent the Level 2 Award in Food Safety in Catering).
Our courses are delivered by experienced Environmental Health Officers (EHO’s) who visit catering businesses on a daily basis. There are cheaper on line courses available but a learning environment with new and experienced caterers and experienced EHO’s ensures a broader learning outcome. As a result, we achieve very high pass rates.
You will gain knowledge in all the key food safety principles including:
- Bacteria and Microbiology
- Requirements for Food Safety Management Systems and HACCP
- Cross contamination
- Temperature control
- Personal Hygiene
And much more.
Courses are run over two afternoons
- from 1:30 pm to 5 pm.
You must attend both afternoons to complete the course. There is a short 20 question multiple choice assessment at the end of the course.
The course is delivered in a friendly relaxed environment and can be adjusted to accommodate most learners’ needs.
The course fee is £75 per person (until April 2019).
This includes 2 afternoon’s tuition, all the course materials, your examination and your certificate.
The courses are held at
- Civic Offices, High Street, Epping, Essex, CM16 4BZ.
